Last week Ted made his getaway to California's Sierras. He'd have gone sooner, but the weather wasn't cooperating. I've spoken with him a lot since his arrival on the ridge. The big to-do this year was redoing the road. For those of you who have traveled down that road, you know what I'm talking' about, and for those of you who haven't OMG ~ scary!
At home I waiver between excited and overwhelmed as we head into the final weeks before Jen's wedding. I have 7 more of these to make. Erin and I hit Hobby Lobby and Michaels in search of paper and candle holders. We found this blue paper at Michaels. Must have been a hit with everyone; not a lot left. I placed the ball on top of the vintage candle holder found at Marketplace 42. Just need to add a bit of ribbon - it's a winner.
At the same time, I cleaned up some old photos for Qunicy's mom, Annette. Those photos from the 70's are problematic. Almost wish we'd have used black and white. Old stuff from Mom was a lot easier to deal with.
Still working to catch up on IW2016 (Donna Downey). Diane and I are doing this as a part of our 2016 word commitment. I'm still in April. This is one of the few online events that I like. Most of them loose my interest, but this one is a challenge with no rules and a ton of inspiration.
I've had a whole week to settle into summer. Still haven't hit the pool, although today looks like the day. We've had heat warnings the past two days, but our overnight low is still 70 degrees. It's the overnight temps that separate us from the rest of the world and keep it hot in the desert. We've been blessed this year. That still doesn't make mowing the lawn, picking up after the dogs and the cat any more appealing. Must remember to look on the bright side of life.
